Présentation de l'éditeur
Mysteries abound in this exciting race through Rome!
Beatrice Archer may love history, and Rome may be chock-full of it, but that doesn’t mean she wants to move there!
Too bad Beatrice’s father got a job as the head of the history department at the American Academy in Rome—now, Beatrice has no choice but to get used to the idea.
When she arrives in Rome she explores her new city as much as she can, but it isn’t until she hears talk of a strange neighborhood legend that Beatrice perks up. A centuries-old unsolved mystery about the beautiful turtle fountain outside her window? Sounds like fun!
Before Beatrice has a chance to explore, though, she sees a dark figure emerge from the shadows of the square in the middle of the night—and steal the famous turtle sculptures that give the fountain its name.
When no one believes her story, Beatrice knows that it’s up to her to solve the crime and restore the turtles to their rightful place. With the help of her new friend Marco, she navigates a world of unscrupulous ambassadors, tricky tutors, and international art thieves to unravel one of Roman history’s greatest dramas—before another priceless work of art is stolen.

Tiffany Parks, a writer, editor, blogger, and tour guide who lives in Rome, has written a brilliant first novel., steeped in the history of Rome and its art. Her love of Rome shines through on every page. You can taste the gelato while you're reading the book. And you can learn a little Italian along with Beatrice. Tiffany translates all the Italian phrases into English in her footnotes. I hope that, one day, Midnight in the Piazza will be translated into Italian. And I would love to see more adventures of Beatrice Archer. Midnight in the Piazza was written for children ages 8-12, but people of all ages will enjoy it.
Full disclosure: Tiffany Parks recently took me on a wonderful tour of the sites in Rome where my work-in-progress, a novel about Beatrice Cenci, a young 16th century noblewoman executed for the murder of her abusive father, takes place. The Piazza Mattei and the turtle fountain are very close to the Palazzo Cenci, so Tiffany took me there as well. The turtle fountain truly is amazing! We had corresponded for about two years before then, but I read her novel before we met face-to-face. But none of this has influenced my opinion of her book.
